Serial's "Nice White Parents" podcast series
Serial Podcast series “Nice White Parents” weaves an interesting story that is similar but different from the story that was the genesis of Membership Keeper software. Membership Keeper was created by a parent, Lesley Paiva, that wanted the same programming for her children and their classmates that was being given at the “popular” schools. She was told that funds for that programming was best raised through the PTA. It was a lot to put on parents and we gave it our best effort. The "Nice White Parents" podcast series highlights why fair educational opportunities was and is an uphill battle. Membership Keeper was created to be a tool to help organize volunteer efforts to, ultimately, help students.
